10 Best Smartphones of 2012
Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx HD (Verizon Wireless)
The Droid RAZR Maxx HD is the marathoner of smartphones. In fact, this Verizon device lasts more than two hours longer than the average smartphone. We’re talking 8 hours and 13 minutes in the LAPTOP Battery Test, which involves continuous Web surfing over 4G LTE.
But the Droid RAZR Maxx isn’t all about its beefy 3,300 mAh battery. It sports a sleek but strong Kevlar-infused design, a very bright and crisp HD display and loud and clear audio. A recent upgrade to Jelly Bean adds welcome enhancements like Google Now and offline voice typing. You’ll pay a premium for the Maxx’s extra endurance, but it’s well worth it.
